Social Finance is seeking outstanding individuals to complete a two to three month internship in summer 2013.
Interns will work on the following types of project alongside an Associate or Analyst:
– Social Impact Bond (SIB) Development: SIBs seek to solve social problems by aligning social and financial returns and attracting new money into the third sector. We are currently developing new SIBs in areas such as employment and drug rehabilitation. Interns will be expected to carry out research on these social problems, evaluate successful interventions and assess the feasibility of the potential application.
– Development Impact Bond (DIB) Development: DIBs seek to provide new sources of financing from private investors to improve social outcomes in poor countries. We are investigating applying the DIB model to issues such as family planning and sleeping sickness. Interns will assist in analysing social interventions, defining target(s), and developing potential payment metrics.
– Product Development: analysis and research to help Social Finance create new social investment products such as a Venture Capital Trust (VCT) that will invest in promising social enterprises.
For further information please download the document at the bottom of this page. The deadline for applications is 28.02.2013
